Graham English: I'm the king of the castle and you're the dirty rascal. Last in's a rotten egg. WHAT ELSE DID WE SAY THEN?
EM Hughston: Bags first.
Kerry Saxby-Junna: Girls are weak throw them in the Creek. Boys are strong like King Kong. It is all about political correctness now!
Kerry Mahony: A tisket, a tasket. We all fall down.
Lynda McDougall: Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor, rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief....Indian chief!
Maria Richens Freeman: Step on a crack you'll break your mothers back.
Ross Maroney: Don't pull a face like that. The wind might change, and you'll be stuck with it.
Michelle Styles: Were you born in a tent..…
John Pirie: Knuckle down skinny tight, no fudging.
Phil Fletcher: Last one home is a rotten egg! We actually walked two kilometres to school back than!
Chris Richards: If you don't stop crying I'll give you something to cry about.

Margaret Gordon: Ask no questions you'll be told no lies.
Jennifer Collins: What's the time Mr Wolf ... so often played outside with parents in the evening. To wear you out! Along with Statues/Freeze etc. Life was so simple then…
Graham English: My mother used say on some starless and moonless nights, "It's as dark as the inside of a cow."
Kathryn Coughran: When I was in Young, we 'did a lap of the main'. In those days, in Lismore, where the shopping centre formed a square, young people 'did a blockie' or 'circled the block'. I thought doing a lap of the main had a better ring to it.
Tony Quinn: Keep that up and I'll split your nose like a sheep's foot!
